THE IDEA

As we consider the best way to reach the students of the Colorado Western Slope in pursuit of post-secondary options, College Outreach is again hosting a colloquium for counselors from Western Slope high schools to meet, learn and collaborate on the current educational opportunities and admissions landscape with admissions representatives from a variety of colleges and universities.

THE BACKGROUND

Previously, College Outreach had hosted a series of seminars (College Next Spring Seminars) for high school students and their parents. The seminars, given by college admissions representatives, included topics to help students better prepare their college application process - financial aid, student athletes, essay writing and more. We believe we are better able to prepare students by enabling their counselors access to the most relevant, up-to-date, information on the post-secondary process. By bringing in representatives from a variety of post-secondary programs, colleges and universities, counselors will be able to get answers to the questions most relevant for our Western Slope students.
